Dr. Besigye scoffs at East African integration plans in his message before Uhuru's last speech

Dr. Kizza Besigye has disagreed with the plans of the East African integration, which he says are aimed at integrating people at the top rather than accomodating those at the bottom.

Dr. Besigye was interviewed before Kenya President Uhuru Kenyatta's last State of the Nation address by KTN.

The opposition political leader hailed Kenyans for supporting him during the tough times and urged them to continue to do so.

However, he centred his comments on the ongoing East African integration which he says ought to think about the people down the ladder.

Here below is the entire view of the FDC leader as reproduced from KTN.

Thank you for this opportunity.

I would like to pass my greetings to all Kenyans out there and to thank you for the support from time to time received when we are having difficulties here in Uganda.

I think regional cooperation is one of the most important things.

That is going to help us in harmonizing how all of us in the region relate to our governance.

because at the end of the day the struggle we have is a common struggle to improve our lot.

Make sure we can have decent jobs, decent incomes, decent services and infrastructure that serves to our benefit.

I think there has been a bit of a gap between what our leaders do, what governments do and what people down do or a involved in.

This has always been a challenge in terms of the efforts at the regional integration. There is more of integrating governments, people at the top without integrating the people themselves.
